BOYS ARE STUPID!!!!!!!! (part 2)

So I get home from work this evening and think "I should feed my... Where's Scion?"

Yep I came home to an empty tank.  The moron jumped.  Worst part?  We can't find the body.  I scoured my room.  The shelf the boys live on.  The desk under the shelf the boys live on.  The book cases under the desk under the shelf that the boys live on.  The cords that drape down below the shelf that the boys live on and behind the desk below the shelf.  We pulled out the book cases below the desk below the shelf.  NOTHING!

Stupid stupid fish!

He's like freaking Houdini and this was his last trick...

Magical Toilet

Kana asked about the Lazarus effect of the toilet on one of my previous fish, so I am humoring her, since she is one of two people who read this blog.

The fish in question was another moon platy named Riku, I got him at the same time I got Scion.  I got them after owning Dante for about a year or so.  I originally put Riku in the tank with Scion.  He wasn't going in with Dante because Dante can be a bit of a bully.  But Scion started picking on Riku as well so Riku got his own tank.  We got him 2 more friend, Daddy-o, formerly known as Sora (yes that was my yaoi obsession) and Auron, another guppy sadly deceased.

I came home to discover Auron doing the backstroke and Sora swimming about.  Riku was nowhere to be seen.  I flushed Auron and proceeded to search my desk area for Riku.  I found him.  Dried out on an old credit card statement.  I sighed and pick up the credit card statement and went to the restroom.  I gently pushed Riku off and was just about to flush the toilet when the bugger started swimming!

I scooped him out of the toilet and rushed him into clean water.  He died about a week later.  I was amazed he survived that long.

Fish are fascinating creatures, and again boys are stupid...

Boys Are STUPID!!!!

Apparently it doesn't matter what species they are.  They are all freaking stupid!

I suppose an explanation might be appreciated.

I am the proud owner of 2 Betta...  Both male, because I like the pretty ones, and the only pretty ones are male...  And both attempted suicide.  Dante, my older red boy, jumped from my hand on to the kitchen counter while transporting him to a different bowl so I could clean his tank.  And while I scrambled to catch him he jumped from the kitchen counter and on to the floor.  The idiot managed to tear half his tail fin off.  It scared the hell out of me and I felt bad as I watched his blood drip in his temporary bowl.  This lead me to looking up possible infections for Betta while I waited for Dante's water to settle

As I put Dante's tank back on the shelf with my other Betta, Scion, blue and young; and the boys, a moon platy, guppy, and bottom feeder: Daddy-o, Laddy-o, and Spook (god bless Carlin), respectively.  I noticed that Scion's fins were crumpled.  Further research leads me to suspect a fungal infection.  I decided to steralize his tank tonight and as I took him out he too jumped onto the kitchen counter, luckily he did not land on the floor like Dante, and there were no ripped fins either.

Both boys have medication in their bowls now, so hopefully there will not be a toilet in their future...

Granted that toilet did have a Lazarus like effect on Riku one of my other fish...

Mostly Dead

Inigo Montoya: He's dead. He can't talk.
Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.
Inigo Montoya: What's that?
Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

I'M ALIVE!!!!!

I think I've been somewhere between mostly dead and all dead.  Life's been hectic.  Our GM left.  My 'ex' is still trying to remove the 'ex' status.  Concerts and midterms and tennis rackets.  Yes my life is interesting right now.  Parts of it remind me of Manga.  I'd like those parts to stop.  I'm sure my bed, upper back and tennis racket would appreciate it.  Not to mention my clutch, psp, and lip-gloss.

Internet Finds:
I fully intend to own this as soon as I save up the money.  I can just imagine all the bizarre things that will happen to it.

With friends like these...

And everyone wonders why I don't do drugs

Creepy Cool
